Environment is all the conditions, circumstances, and influences, surrounding and affecting the development of an organism.. The individual organism comes into being and develops in a maternal environment which supplies nourishment and other biological needs. The environment into which each of us is born supplies the material and social sustenance with which we build our lives and without which none of us could live or develop as human beings. Our environment supplies food, shelter, and clothing; the language that we learn to speak, established customs, traditions, beliefs, modes of behavior, and a growing store of human experiences.

The actual environment for any individual is limited to the impressions that he receives and to which he reacts. After birth, there is a powerful impulse to grow within the child. Surrounding him are the forces of culture into which he has been born and the immediate environment in which he is to live. From the moment of his coming, this environment will influence the shaping of his habits and the molding of his character. Unaware to the child, he helps to create his environment. Through his experiences and all his ways he commands attention, makes impressions, and without so intending, influences the attitude of his elders.
